The Saint Peter's Peacocks upset the Kentucky Wildcats in the first round of March Madness. The breakout star for the Peacocks was junior Doug Edert who came off the bench to make two huge three-pointers and all eight of his free throw attempts. Kentucky fans will have nightmares about Edert for years. Here are some images that might haunt their dreams.

Edert, from Nutley, New Jersey, has only scored 20 or more twice in his three seasons at Saint Peter's. Earlier this season he scored 21 in a loss to Iona. He scored a career-high 28 in a win against Rider during his freshman year.
